A Variety of Tactile Sensations

While this babydoll creates a sexy effect that's good for foreplay but it's probably too delicate to wear during sex or while sleeping. However, it's available at a great price, you may enjoy the tickler and the design of the babydoll will fit a variety of sizes even if the same cannot be said for the included panty.

extremely useful review
When I purchased this set, my focus was the babydoll. Lingerie sets tend to come with accessories are cheap and that's true for the tickler. It's some softly, stuffed handle, wrapped in the same satin as the cups and attached to a couple black feathers. The handle is about 5" long but seems shorter due to its weird construction. The feathers are a few of inches themselves and there's not much too much. The whole thing feels light and disposable. It's not that the feathers can't provide some light stimulation -- they can -- it just seems more like a cat toy than one meant for human use. With that said, hide it from your cats if you don't want it to be a cat toy.

However, the company did put more thought into its babydoll, at least a little bit. It's only available in two sizes: one size fits most and plus. This is disappointing but can be worked around because of the tie design I opted for the plus but I'm kind of wondering now if the regular would fit because it's so loose. According to the size charts, pieces like this are intended to fill the range between 1X and 4X and that's a far larger range than the other size available which is perhaps why it seems to fall more toward the larger end of the range.

The babydoll ties in the back with black ribbon. On its tightest setting, it's comfortably loose on me and should fit those around the 40" bust area and perhaps a bit smaller, like me. However, if you tie the ribbons on their very ends you can extend this 24" or so, making the design pretty versatile in terms of fit. The back of the babydoll falls open to reveal the panty and the bare skin of your back. Because of this and the general looseness, it was also very flowy in the front, which I don't mind. In fact, I would hazard a guess that in many of the promo pics, the back is actually secured somehow to give this the more form fitting appearance that it has in the photos. It's not really like that at all.

The included panty is also on the larger size. It's easily going to fit a 42" hip, as suggested by the size chart. Although the sides are string bikini style, the front and back are cut wide and tall, with the front measuring 10.5" from the top of the band to the seam at the crotch. Of course, it makes sense for the back to be full because how else could they cut out a heart-shape, trim it with lace and fill it with red mesh so you can see through it? And the open back style of the babydoll is perfect to compliment that. I do like the creativity, I just wish DreamGirl offered more size choices so I could wear the panty.

But I soldiered on with the babydoll and I mostly love it. In front, the cups are made of the same shiny, red satin as the panty. It's really much shinier than the images show. The tops are trimmed with black mesh ruffles which contrast prettily. Tiny ribbon bows are sewn where the elastic straps connect to the top of the cups and there's a larger black bow right between the cups. I could do with only one set of bows but it's cute enough. Although the size chart indicates this is intended from D-cups to infinity and beyond, my C-cups didn't feel swamped. They perhaps don't look as voluptuous as a larger bosom but the triangular cut was flattering.

The elastic straps are adjustable, like a bra, and quite long when extended all the way. This makes the piece great for women of a variety of heights. The empire waist also offers stretch, beyond the length of the ribbons, which also adds to comfort. The majority of the babydoll is a super soft, sheer and silky mesh that feels sensuous against my skin. The hem is trimmed in a black lace ruffle. I'm not sure why they didn't use the same mesh ruffle as the top but it's a minor detail.

One thing that I find hard to ignore is the way the elastic is sewn onto one of the cups. It seems to be cut and applied with a bit of glue to stop it from running or ribbing but the glue hard hardened and one side constantly rubs against my skin uncomfortably. I really hope this will soften after wearing because it smarts like hell and even left a red spot on my flesh after wearing it to bed.

Experience
And you definitely should not wear this to bed, even if you're comfortable in it. It's a shame because I want to but even after only doing this once, I can see the place where the ribbons are sewn into the back of the piece starting to rip. It's just impossible to not strain them as you move in your sleep, especially considering the open back design. So keep this one to the sexy times unless you plan on reinforcing it yourself. This is a pretty common problem with lingerie. Companies don't take enough time to ensure that ribbons won't rip. Even though the rest of the lace, elastic, satin and mesh are sewn quite well, the ribbon is the downfall of the babydoll. I'd also recommend hand-washing because of this as the tag suggests.

The babydoll hangs down to the top 1/3 - 1/2 of my thigh (but remember that I'm a shorty). From the images, it seems like plus-size might be longer than the one size fits most, which falls to the upper thigh of the model.

Ultimately, I feel ridiculously sexy wearing even just the babydoll and it's a really good price if you can forgive its shortcomings.

    "it just seems more like a cat toy than one meant for human use." *snort*

    Great review. Sounds like a disappointment all around, though I guess the price was kind of a giveaway. Glue on the elastic though? Ugh!

    Silverdrop, I have no idea about the glue thing. It could actually be burned/soldered to a hard texture but it does chafe.

    Thanks for reading, everyone!

    Dammit! This looked so promising!

    I keep eyeing this and thinking about it - I'm just not sure on the length without actual measurements. I guess I will keep looking and thinking about it longer!
  • Adriana Ravenlust
    It's 18" from the bottom of the bust to the edge of the trim. The cups themselves are about 7" high but the overall length will differ, depending on where you adjust the straps. Hope that helps.
